British Menopause Society

The British Menopause Society (BMS), established in 1989, educates, informs and guides healthcare professionals in all aspects of post reproductive health.

This is achieved through an annual programme of lectures, conferences, meetings, exhibitions and our interactive website. We offer a range of publications including our quarterly journal Post Reproductive Health and the definitive handbook Management of the Menopause.

Our mission

  • To increase awareness of post reproductive healthcare issues
  • To promote optimal management through our educational programme, publications and information dissemination

The publication in November 2015 of the NICE Guideline, Menopause: diagnosis and management is leading to a sharper focus on the mid-life medical challenges facing women. And as most British women can expect to live for thirty years or more beyond menopause, the consequences for immediate and longer term healthcare and lifestyle are significant.
